The Kesternich test is a cyclic corrosion test involving condensation humidity and the introduction of sulphur dioxide gas.

The Ascott KH300 is a Fully Automatic, SO2 Gas Dosing Test Chamber that meets international standards ASTM D2247, ISO 11503, NFT 30-077, NFT 30-055, ASTM G87, BS3900/F9, ISO 6270-2 CH, EN ISO 6988, SFW 2,0,S, ISO EN 1096 B, DIN 50017 KK & KTW, ISO 3231, DIN 50018, VDA 621-421, ISO EN 1096 C.

During the testing phase, a specific volume of SO2 gas is introduced into the test chamber. The chamber temperature is increased to a predetermined level and the relative humidity is maintained at condensation levels >95%R.H. After a set period, the chamber is then vented and the temperature is allowed to decrease to ambient conditions.

The Ascott Kesternich chamber requires no human intervention throughout the test cycle as it is fully automatic and programmable.
